Ahh, Teaism. I love the idea of going to a ‘tea house’ that has a wonderful selection of quality tea (and food) and sitting down and chatting, without being worried about LOUD starbucks-y music or huge lines. DC has a place just like this and that place is the subject 🙂
I especially like the Dupont Circle location: it is 2 stories and full of wonderful smells, a fantastic selection of tea (to buy and drink) and tea-related drinks, as well as a creative menu of food. I smelled and saw some absolutely incredible looking snowpea stir fry tonight! Teaism is also home to some of the most comforting Chai-Tea I’ve ever tasted: it’s really warming and soothing.
